    I just find it so hard to spend that kind of money on a 22 but man they are fun. I got to shoot the ruger version and it was a blast

    Matt76, Yes they are not cheap. I purchased it about two years ago when I came in to some money. With the scope and red light and 5 mags of 25 rounds it was a little over $800.

    If it is any consolation, the ammo is getting higher and higher, so you don’t have to feel bad spending more money on the weapon :( </sarc>

    Nice shooter, Free!

    I got it when 22LR was a box of 550 for $23. I think it is coming down a little.

    I appreciate many of the “tacticool” .22s out today for training, however in my experience they fall shy on the durability side on occasion but most of the time its the accuracy that suffers for the cool factor.

    What groups are you getting out of that beast?

    Me, I will tolerate fair accuracy out of a combat or hunting gun, but a .22 because of its power level must make up for that with precision.

    Whirlibird, the Sig522 are very durable, my son gets a better grouping then I do but I think it is my eyes are not as good as his. Son gets at 50 yds group of 1″ and 100 yds in the 1 1/2 to 2″ grouping. My grouping are all over the place so I got to get new eye wear.

    They are more money then a Ruger 10/22 but I got them because my plan is to buy the Colt AR 15 for my son and one for me so the Sig522 is close to the look and feel of an AR. Also the folding stock makes them compact and easy to handle in close quarters.

    I think if you have the extra cash they are a good buy but if you do not then just buy the Ruger.

    I bought a GSG 5 a few years back. I did not care for it at all. Ended up trading it out for a 10/22 and some cash. Biggest problem I had was feeding issues, regardless of what I tried feeding it. I considered getting a 22LR AR upper, but I’ve heard mixed reviews on those. The 10/22s have always worked really well for me, and they’re so modular you can basically make it into anything you want.

    The Ruger 10/22 is one of the best 22lr there is. My Sig522 has been a great weapon. No feeding problems at all.

    Freedom…. Some of the Crizal anti glare lenses may improve your groups. Scratched lenses are very annoying when need to see well.

    The 10/22 is like a Camaro, you can do a lot to it.
    And there’s a couple of things that need to be done, in my experience.

    Moat of the tactical .22s are junk, period.
    For every good one, there’s the rest.

    AR15 uppers, don’t skimp on price, you want a decent barrel to start.
    Secondly, take it to your smith and have him polish the living daylights out of it. If ir moves, polish. If its a bearing surface, polish.
    Fire lap the barrel (your 10/22 also), it will pay off in spades.

    Im a.22 snob.
    And bluntly there are zero modern .22s I will buy.
    Why? Simple, the quality and attention to detail isn’t there unless we are talking a $1000 Kimber or Cooper. Even the CZs aren’t what they were 20 years ago.

    If I have to go and put several hours work into a rifle to make it shoot like a rack grade Remington or Savage from the 60s that I can get for $125, we have a problem.

    When modern guns break before 75 year old rifles, we have a problem. My 30 year old Marlin bolt gun may be on its third firing pin, but it has consistently outshot more expensive rifles, despite the trigger.

    There was a point in time, people took pride in what they made, a little bit of each person who built that rifle was in each one. Today its all assembly line junk.

    Before the .22 ammo crunch in Ny I managed to acquire a couple of bricks of aguila 60gr. subsonic and have been looking for a .22 rifle for it. The walther g22 seemed good with a 20 inch barrel. And then I thought a bolt action .22 with a longer barrel would be better. Any suggestions so I can buy something useful. If there were a sig in Ny I’d consider it but I think they’re all banned by now. Stainless would be good in the climate here. 10 shot mags only though.

    The faster the barrel twist, the better with the 60gr SSS loads. The 1:7 twist available in some barrels does better than slower twists for accuracy.
    And the longer the barrel, the better.
    My old Marlin M39 (24″ barrel”) does well with them, but it’s no quieter than ‘target’ ammo.

    If you can find one of the older Remington 510 (511/512) series of rifles, you may be well ahead in your search.
    Light, full sized and accurate. And best of all, normally more than reasonably priced.
